The Kosciuszko Craft Beer Festival – January 7th 2017

A one day event held at the Thredbo Alpine Hotel in the small town of Thredbo in the heart of the Snowy Mountains, the Kosciuszko Craft Beer Festival will be our first festival of 2017 and it is one that we are rather excited about. Why? Well this one is a little more of a festival for the beer brewer than the beer drinker. Don’t get us wrong those who enjoy beer will definitely enjoy it too! As it will provide and excellent view into the beer brewing world for anyone who may be interested.

It’s not too far from Tumut -only around 3 hours- and being nestled in the mountains it will be the perfect occasion for people to combine a love of beer and the outdoors. It’s free family event for people of all ages taking place from 12pm to 5pm, with: a BBQ, live music, beer brewing demonstrations and free beer tastings (yes free beer!) from some of Australia’s exciting up and coming craft brewers. There’s also a home brew competition for all those avid home brewers out there who want to join in the fun!Tumut

In the evening there is a Beer, Ales and Tales Degustation Dinner, this is $65 per head and features six beers from the festival paired perfectly with five tasty dishes crafted by the Executive Chef of the Thredbo Alpine Hotel. Now we can’t tell you if one of our beers will feature in the dinner -because we honestly just don’t know yet- but it will definitely be a memorable evening worth attending.

So if you’re from the area and want to taste our excellent beer -and other excellent beers too- or are reading this from afar and want to combine your love of tasting beer with your desire to be outdoors then check out the website for the festival here!

We hope to see you there!

Arabica VS Robusta Beans
Arabica VS Robusta Beans

The flavour of coffee, like wine, is affected by the soil, altitude and climate that it is grown in. Also, like wines grapes, the variety of bean used to brew coffees also contribute a lot to the flavours of your cup. Where coffee and wine differ here is that there are thousands of varieties of wine grapes and many different varieties have dedicated followings. With coffee, however, we don’t have this variation in the beans and you might be surprised to hear that there are only two types of beans that we use to produce most the worlds third most popular beverage; arabica and robusta. We are not saying these are the only varieties of coffee bean but they are the only ones used to produce coffee.

Stylin' Brews: Smoked Porter
Stylin' Brews: Smoked Porter

August 01, 2018

Porters are beers made with brown malts, creating a deep, dark coloured ale. These malts give off richer flavours of coffee, chocolate, dark fruits and caramel, often with some vanilla and toffee swilling around in the glass too. Hops? Not too prominent a flavour here, mainly used just for bittering, and any hop flavour there is will complement the flavours of the malts.
